How can I convert a BMP into a JPEG from Visual C++ ?
The source is a DIB-Image captured from a video-card and I have to convert it to JPEG-Images. I found a sollution by calling a command-line-converter, but I want to do all the work in my application. There are some web-sites which offer powerfull dll's or active-x but I'm looking for a free tool (doesn't have to be very powerfull - only converting).

A class library can be found on:
www.visualc.com
Look for the 'CImage' class - supports many file types, is free, and can save .jpg files,
but has no option for compression ratio.

Also there is a 'nviewlib.dll' which is also free, and it does offer .jpg saving. You can
also specify the compression ratio in percent, but it has some disadvantages.
The page where i got it from is down, and i don't know where to get it now. But if you like,
i can post it to you via EMail (it is about 300-400 kb with docs).

But if the compression ratio is no argument for you, CImage is much more flexible.
(I think it uses some good quality, medium compression ratio).
Hope this helped :)

Can give you a DLL that does that...The code is in Delp(Pascal)...Do you think it can help?

I will upload it to http://absd.hypermart.net/media/nviewlib.zip
BTW: You're lucky, nviewlib is basically written for Delphi.

I found several good tools on www.visualc.com.
